Obsessive Karl Lagerfeld fans might want to book a trip to Germany in the next few months. Style.com reports that the Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany in Bonn is putting on a retrospective of Lagerfeld's entire career in fashion, beginning with a yellow coat he designed in 1954 through his work with fashion houses like Chloé, Fendi, and Chanel. The exhibit opens tomorrow and will run through September 13. Chanel haute couture dresses and Fendi bags will be on display, with 126 pieces of clothing from Lagerfeld’s oeuvre represented. And the exhibit will even replicate Lagerfeld’s desk, which is covered with fashion sketches, naturally.
